Kernan back in Lurgan

JOE Kernan - the highly-successful former Armagh boss - will arrive in Lurgan on Sunday with his Crossmaglen Rangers side.

The match will mark a first high-profile competitive fixture for Kernan following his return to Rangers in place of Tony McEntee and Gareth O’Neill.

Kernan, of course, can not only point to All-Ireland glory with Armagh but a string of titles in charge of Crossmaglen.

St Paul’s will use the occasion to mark the official opening of the club’s playing pitch.

Last season featured defeat for St Paul’s in the Division Two play-off but hard work over the close-season period could result in rewards this year.
